Dorade won her class IRC Three in the 2014 Caribbean 600 Race, finishing Thursday, February 28th at 08:35 AST.
Dorade secured in addition to her 1st in IRC 3, IRC Overall -35th place and CSA Overall – 25th place. The race has been a learning experience, and we will have lots of feedback and lessons to go over.
All in all, Dorade held up well. Little damage to all key systems, only a few minor equipment breakdowns (normal breakages) and a shredded the A3 Kite on a reaching leg well powered up.
It was extremely hard sailing for Dorade and its crew in the conditions encountered. It was not an easy task to continually push the boat to her limits… Overall, the race was very tough. Much tougher than expected. The boat and the crew suffered it well.
It has been a long 24 hour run into the finish.
